Keeping up to date with accessible events post Disabled Access Day

Now that Disabled Access Day is over for 2016, how do you stay up to date with accessible events and activities? Well, as part of a venue’s registration process, we asked them to register on Euan’s Guide, the disabled access review website and app. Through Euan’s Guide, venues can add all of their accessible events and we’ve been encouraging venues to get listing what’s coming up.

Take a look at some of our favourite accessible events over the coming months:

The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night Time (BSL)

National Theatre, London, Saturday 7th May, 2:30pm.

Based on Mark Haddon’s award winning novel, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, this rave reviewed production is a must see this spring! The performance is based around a young boy with Asperger’s Syndrome or as the character, Christopher, describes himself ‘someone who has Behavioural Problems’. Christopher discovers that his neighbour’s dog has been murdered and sets about getting to the bottom of the mystery. A fantastic cast, an imaginative set and action packed performance – you’re sure to have a great time!
